An Ohio woman and a Monticello man were arrested by the Somerset Police Department last weekend.

According to information from the SPD, Detective Shannon Smith stopped 25-year-old Cassandra E. Baker of Bethel, Ohio, for a traffic offense in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Smith discovered that Baker was driving on a DUI-suspended license. Her record also showed that she was wanted by the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office in Ohio in connection with a burglary. Baker was also charged with being a fugitive from justice.

She was lodged in the Pulaski County Detention Center.

Also last weekend, Charles A. Green was arrested by Somerset Police Officer Eric Moore.

Green was a passenger in a vehicle that was stopped for weaving in traffic.

When Officer Moore asked Green for identification, Green said he had none. He gave Moore the name “Julius Green” along with a birth date and social security number. Moore warned Green that giving an officer a false name was a crime.

When the information provided by Green didn’t check out, Officer Moore asked Green to exit the vehicle to be checked for weapons.

As Green exited the vehicle, he placed his hand in his pocket. Moore removed Green’s hand and felt a pill bottle.

The bottle, which had another person’s name on it, contained several tablets which were not in their proper container.

Green eventually gave Officer Moore his correct name.

He was charged with having a prescription controlled substance not in a proper container; possession of a controlled substance 2nd degree; and giving an officer a false name or address.

Green was lodged in the Pulaski County Detention Center.
